Else Bro Thuestad's broken heart takes her to New York by coincidence. But she is far from done with love, and in a random apartment block in the city she stops the inhabitants in the hallway and, armed with a handheld camera, asks them the overwhelming and intrusive question: what is love? Surprisingly enough, they all - both young and old - have an answer and a love story to talk about. One woman has had enough of it, and another one has never experienced it - apart from in her dreams. The classical answer is that love is the selfless surrender to another human being. One gentleman in the hallway gives us a different answer: to love is to forestall the loss of the loved one. It comes straight from the heart, and in 'Talk About Love' the microcosm of the building becomes an image of something much larger. The film takes us to the corridors, into the intimate rooms and right into the hearts of its inhabitants.
